I know this was solved but I somehow have a similar problem. Unfortunately this way does not work for rich text elements that are connected to a CMS Collection as I am not able to select the list inside. I would like to exchange the bullets with checkmarks/an image but can find no way to do so. Do you have an idea?
Hi there! I know I’m not Nelson, but I recently tackled this on my own site. I created another page where I keep a Rich Text element to adjust styles. Give the element the same class name as your CMS Rich Text element and then style away! All of your styles will be mirrored for the CMS version.
Thanks for your quick reply! As mentioned, the usual “replace list bullets to custom icons” as shown in the forum post you shared is not working for lists integrated in rich text fields connected to a CMS rich text field.
But I found a simple solution in the meantime. In the elements panel of my browser I searched for the list class Webflow assigned to this list and did some basic CSS:
Create rich-text-editor add any styles you want (Remember to add class otherwise the changes effect the entire site). Add any styles/color you want - and than only than bind CMS RTE feild (Sometimes i put extra RTE next to the “bind” RTE and make this changes).
The docs about this issue:
Rich text elements can be connected to rich text fields in a Collection. When a RTE is connected, it’s no longer possible to select or edit text elements, except for in the CMS. That’s because the content is pulled from the CMS itself.
To style a connected RTE, it’s recommended to disconnect (unbind) it from the field, style the nested elements, and then re-connect (bind) it. If you just want to apply a class on a connected RTE, you can do that without disconnecting it. Learn more about dynamic rich texts.
Then follow the same article - post2 (I wrote this) - This idea works fine also on CMS RTE
If this not work for you i will update the original post (I am almost sure its fine).
